11 Year Expired Products, Maggots etc. The SHOCKING Tale of Chocolat Royal Shut Down by NAFDAC

Chocolat Royale NAFDAC 2

Seized Expired Products from Chocolate Royal

Chocolat Royal on Etim Inyang Crescent in VI, Lagos is a well known and loved bakery, ice cream shop and cafe.

Many who frequent the shop/building, that also houses sister companies 96.9 Cool FM and 95.1 WAZOBIA FM, amongst others, and were shocked to find out it was shut down by NAFDAC last week. According to City Reporters, several facts emerged:

Chocolat Royale NAFDAC-Amin-house

Photo from the Raid

  • All food products/source material had expired – the oldest since 2004 and the newest in 2013. There were maggots found in some.
  • 90% of the products were not labelled in English, and therefore were not registered by NAFDAC.
  • Illegal cold rooms were found in the building and in the MD – Amin Moussalli‘s house.
  • The contaminated food products were stored in cold rooms on top of sewage (‘suck away’ pit) and in front of toilets.

The foreign chefs also gave chilling insight into the business practices – they knew the products were expired but still went ahead to make them. City Reporters states:

On interrogation, the jittery cooks who identified themselves as John Gbokasa and David from Benin Republic confirmed to NAFDAC officials that the House belongs to Mr Moussali and that the fake, unregistered and expired food products found inside the two cold rooms were for Chocolat Royal.

“I know that the products have expired, some, 2004, 2006, 2009, but I am a cook and I take instruction from my boss,” David said.

“Anytime they need some products to prepare edibles at Chocolat Royal, they come here with van and mine is to give them key to take whatever they want and after they finish taken the items, they will return the key to me,” John added.

They however begged the NAFDAC officials not to arrest them but wait until their boss, Mr Moussalli who absconded and is still at large or the wife who they said was out of the country return. NAFDAC however, turn down their plea and arrested the two who during interrogation at Apapa office of the Agency gave vital information to NAFDAC.

      My stomach is turning while reading it and looking at the pics bcos I have a very sensitive one. And easily have diarrhea whenever I eat dairy. This is very sad and unfortunate. I blame Nigerians for always going head over heels for oyibo or foreigners. I’m sure couple of customers noticed it but kept their mouth shut and complained as usual. And, if one person wants to report, another person will say, don’t worry Jo. I still prefer it to our food bcos they are trying to form exotic. It’s time for Nigerians to take action and not just talk. We run our mouths too much with nothing to offer. Asian restaurants are the same here especially Chinese. It’s terrible in the black areas too. Whites will report them in a blink of an eye. I was at a Vietnamese restaurant, the fork on my table was used wrapped in a napkin. I immediately called their attention to it but the white guy sitting next to me insisted he contacted FDA, it needs to do an inspection bcos he’s noticed couple of things there that he doesn’t find hygienic. Moral of story, speak up, fight for yourself at he end of the day it’s your body you are protecting

      I hadn’t been to chocolat royale in like 10 years, (2005 may- i remember clearly), then i went in early May this year (coincidentally). I didn’t even think of the time frame, or the coincidence till this report came out.
      but two week ago when I went there, I vowed not to go there again. The so-called sponge cake I bought was as dry as the sahara dessert and seemed to have been on the shelf for years. the cheese cake seemed to have been put together hurriedly and chilled for the past 6 months to still make it taste ok. I just thot to myself, there is no way I will spend my money in this God-forsaken shop again.

      NAFDAC abeg o, I have also heard similar stories about some of our ‘high end’ eatries ( I wont mention names since stories not confirmed). about how they cook jollof rice etc, in old bathtubs (I didnt believe it, but with this chocolat royal, story, anything seems possible). Shame on the massoufi guy or whatever his fucking name is

      Bought bad chicken from shoprite mid last year since then no more buying of meat or poultry in shoprite, i stick to spar for such purchases, cause they have a high turnover when it comes to meat, goodies is a no no for meat cause of their prices their stock takes a while to leave the shelf so it’s buy at your own risk….

    May 26, 2015 at 11:23 am

    Ever since I bought a brownie years ago that was drawing like into back when they only had the Etim Inyang location. Took it back and the Lebanese woman asked me if I even know what a brownie is let alone what it looks like or when it’s bad?.

    I have not set foot in their stores ever again. With other customers in the store. Told me to get out. I kukuma drop her brownie for counter waka commot. Food poisoning is real and I wasn’t ready to gamble and demand something else. That was 2001.

    • Hmmm

      May 27, 2015 at 12:56 am

      Lollllll. It is my policy to hang on to my temper till it would be detrimental not to lose it. I figured she would get hers. Funny enough, the other customers watched her yelling at me and went on to buy stuff. At least 3 that I noticed. A former chef of theirs works for my sister and his stories justify my forfeiting the money and brownie. How expensive is it to do it right?! My sister makes the same products as them and she makes a decent profit without cutting corners. She imports a lot of items at great cost and charges a little more to cover it. Simple.

    Oh my days! I don’t know whether to scream or cry at this report. Why are humans so greedy and wicked? Or how else do you explain someone still using expired products to prepare food? So many concerns and questions arise ‘How many more persons in the catering business are doing same thing and getting away with it? Was this a routine inspection/raid? (I ask that because how come some goods claimed to have expired since 2013 were still in storage). Was NAFDAC acting on a tip off?

    Nigerians and their love of oyibo packaging. The Lebanese/ Lebanese Nigerians who are just as corrupt as their indigenous Nigerian counterparts and know that their kora packaging gives them an edge and they can afford to serve anything without repercussions. Can they do this in Lebanon or Dubai? Only God knows what meat goes into the food prepared at other famous outlets which I refrain to name. Buyer beware indeed.

    May 26, 2015 at 11:56 am

    All I’m thinking about are those of us that go to these places cos we believe their food is more ‘hygienic’ than ‘Iya Basira’. At least Iya Basira’s food isn’t expired, you only deal with the flies that have protein sef..

    This is just wrong.

  20. Redlich Kwoong

    May 26, 2015 at 11:56 am

    When we encourage foreigners with tax incentives and credit lines thereby making them demi-gods while indigenous start-ups are denied same how can we grow as a nation?

    I can’t begin to imagine what happens behind doors of other popular restaurants, bars and snack bars run by foreigners and to think Nigerians conglomerate those places very frequently because of their brand and think of it as a status symbol.

    The relevant authorities need to step up their game and ensure the strictest adherence to hygiene and health within such facilities. in-order to forestall an epidemic.

    God bless Nigeria!!!

    • ForeignersGrowWingsInNigeria

      May 26, 2015 at 7:09 pm

      Criminal charges should be brought against this man. Mehn, Buhari needs to come in and bring that bastard back! Umaru Dikko style! except this time he will learn from the mistakes made last time! you know Nigeria does not have that type of international power to force extradition of a Lebanese man. So we have to do it like they wanted to do to Umaru Dikko. That man must rot in a Nigerian Cell! I read that he was getting expired products in bulk virtually for free! and that he was even being paid to take away the expired stuff which would have cost the producers abroad so much money to dispose of ethically. So he was gaining money from both ends! Not only getting the expired ingredients for free but being PAID to take them and then putting them into food products that he later sold to Nigerians at exorbitant prices. Mr Amin Moussalli, e no go better for you. You think you are sharp but God pass you. You think you can escape justice you foul sub-human. WA GBA!!!

    • Kuzco

      May 27, 2015 at 8:43 am

      Well, that would be taking it too far as his radio station had nothing to do with this and he’s probably not the owner sef. Maybe a partner. And it won’t b fair to just put the radio station workers out of job because of an AWOL co-owner. And I’m sure it’s a PLC not a sole proprietorship. He doesn’t get to bare the losses personally. So the suggestion won’t serve the intended purpose, His accounts, on the other hand and his personal effects, as many as can be traced to him can be seized. If a court grants them the permission to do that.

    This has nothing to do with “big boys and big girls” not eating at bukka’s. If you can afford to eat at restaurants like this it is not an offense. The real offense is the inhumanity this company has subjected its customers to. The Nigerian government need to stop giving foreigners so much power. This Mr Aim has been treating his Nigerian staff like animals for a very long time. He must be brought to justice. All the innocent children that have been consuming food older than them. He should go and try this crap in his own country.

      You are right, the children, thousands of them, that lagos and Abuja parents have feed chocolate royals cakes and ice creams for years…they ought to be furious – the full weight of the law should be dropped on these bastards.
      Regarding big Boys eating in CR, most Bigs boys I know, and I know a few of the really big ones, eat in buka-like places or restaurants like Yellow chillis etc Nigerian men still prefer local cuisines. Or they eat in their mistresses or wives homes.

    Some of my favourite restaurants in this town are Lebanese-owned o… Chi’moooo! Heuw! I am now suspecting all of them… Just when I was thinking of going to get the hummus package at zone 4 for lunch this afternoon.. 🙁

      Surprisingly, most Nigerians I have met are really lax when it comes to food poisoning. My cousin came to visit us and he was about to eat mouldy rice the other day (it was turning green) I stood next to him, palms clutching my cheeks, my mouth agape in horror. He merely looked at me and scoffed as he told me authoritatively that there is no such thing as food poisoning . Well, I had been told! I calmly carried myself out of the kitchen. Much to my dismay, the next day and the days following that, he was ok.

      That said, this is appalling. Do we know how much fine they have to pay? jail time? What sort of punishment will be meted out on them to deter other people?

    I read the entire report on thecityreporters. The Lebanese guy’s daughter, also the Deputy Group MD, had ran away when the NAFDAC folks left the business location to go the man’s house. Why couldn’t they arrest her there? Why could they arrest the two Benin guys at the house but not her at the office? Will they be checking to make sure she doesn’t leave the country? Naija sef

    A thorough investigation of this mess will uncover a massive racket. How did these expired products/unapproved products get into Nigeria? How did they pass through Customs at either the sea or airports or even land borders? Also, doesn’t NAFDAC have officers stationed at these ports? There is no way these unapproved products would have gotten into Nigeria and be used by Chocolate Royale without the connivance of corrupt law enforcement officers. ICPC should also investigate for corruption.

    I can’t just imagine that Nigeria has no regulatory agency to check the activities of restaurants, eateries and confectionery outlets in Nigeria. I think the incoming administration should look into this as a means of safe guarding lives and also create jobs for those who are nutritionist and food safety professionals. In this way, they will be creating jobs, creating revenue and safe guarding lives.

      This is one of the reasons why life expectancy in Nigeria as a whole is much lower than the developed world. An average nigerian will live to his mid 50s and an average Englishman will live to his late 70s. Anything goes in Nigeria, very little standards. Until we demand and execute reasonable drug and food standards in Nigeria, we cannot expect to be a “developed” country.

    • kunmi

      May 26, 2015 at 5:26 pm

      Life expectancy is not graded by how much sickness you have, but on the availability of treatment in case of sickness, accidents and other stuff. So yes developed countries will have higher age than us cause they have good medical care. Our diet is rated above theirs. So they don’t go into restaurants and start checking for expired products to grade life expectancy.

    • Manny

      May 26, 2015 at 9:34 pm

      How is this one of the reasons why life expectancy is low? Au contraire, chocolat royale has gotten away with this for so long because the average Nigerian’s gut is impervious to expired food. Other things contribute to low expectancy – accidents, strokes etc. It’s not that oyinbos don’t get these too but they have a functioning health system that mitigates the impact.

With cancer and so many illnesses killing people, eateries, restaurants and supermarkets should be inspected thoroughly and fumigation carried out frequently.

It’s like eating sushi in Lagos, for real? Sushi a country where you can bribe inspectors to coverup salmonella findings?

I know of people who own Nigerian shops in Texas, (a state that detests regulation) and how often they are shut down., due to not having a label with an expiration date on common puff puff. For now we have to rely on the goodwill of these vendors and just hope they are doing the right thing. I know this incoming administration cant do everything but I hope the will lay the foundation for such a structure in the future.

      Your father’s driver is wrong. Cancer exists at every tier of our society. The difference is in the diagnosis rates. Some dead poor people don’t even know they died of cancer. They get sick and they manage it with agbo until they die. And if you ask the family the cause of death, they will say “aiye” aka world people or diabetes. Forget it, the poor are as exposed to carcinogens as the rich in Nigeria.

No wonder young Nigerians are dropping dead daily with heart diseases and high blood pressure. Also like Adelegal said, there’s more to this than meets the eye. How did these food get past customs? How come they have been in storage for so long? So NAFDAC hasn’t done a check on them since 2003? How does expired food worth close to a billion naira even leave the shores of their home countries in cargo planes when they should be up for proper disposal? Proper investigations and we will all weep for the numerous pockets that would have been lined with blood dollars! May God help us all

How can there be a whites only restaurant (or lets just say foreign only) in my own country. And the Nigerian cool tv and cool fm staff are tolerating that cotton field lifestyle.

    Our so called leaders empower and facilitate their actions. . . .
    There was once a folklore of a Lebanese mogul in Lagos. When Tax enforcement officers arrived at his premises to look over his books and confirm that he had been paying the correct amount in taxes, he barred them entry and instead contacted the “oga at the top” in Abuja via phone directly. The “oga” directed that the phone be handed to the “bloody civil servants”. The “oga” proceeded to chastise and berate the officers and directed that they leave immediately. This is just one of the many anecdotes of our comical approach to governance. The stage has been long set, and this is just “the tip of the iceberg” of the rot that is Nigeria.
    Let us all scream loud with our new found voice. If you see something, say something. Use your phone to record both sound and pictures. Remember Nigeria is our only home.

    NAFDAC should not be praised for this exposure. NAFDAC died the day Prof Dora Akunyili (May her soul rest in peace) left NAFDAC. It’s obvious the mandatory inspection by NAFDAC has been put on hold for this to have happened. All eateries, manufacturing companies – food, pharmaceutical renew their NAFDAC licences annually. They (NAFDAC) are expected to do inspection @ site before renewing their licences and also regular checks. How many food producing companies have quality assurance officers who are expected to check for irregularities like this? Do we even have a quality management regulatory body in Nigeria? By now some regulatory responsibilities ought to have been carved out of NAFDAC for other regulatory bodies to manage. If NAFDAC, IPAN, SON and a regulatory body governing Quality Assurance( which we ought to have separately) are doing their work as expected, these KILLERS would have been exposed before now. NAFDAC and other food and health regulatory bodies should wake up to their responsibilities. Even the mother of all health regulatory bodies- Federal Ministry of health should save Nigerians from these killers. I pray God will continue to expose the likes of Chocolate Royale. Let’s be watchful of what we eat or drink.

    There is no systematic inspection of food outlets in Nigeria & most of the workers arent Nigerians. I watched a movie of how Americans messed up & contaminated foods in restaurants & fast food outlets. I knew we will have worse case scenario in Nigeria. All food outlets must be routinely inspected on basis of hygeine,products in use,standards etc. Have you tried visiting some the toilets in these outlets??? Sometimes you wont even see soap for your handwash. I feared for Nigeria during the ebola crisis!!! I cringe when I leave some of those Toilets. Everyweek food inspectors come to food outlets and sometimes come un-annouced uring the routine preparation. My friend went to a kitchen location of a fastfood outlet in Lagos and I saw a staff standing Garri spread on the floor of the premises????

    This is really sad. It’s just plain wickedness. Employees of these restaurants owned by the lebanese and Chinese or other foreigners should please be bold enough to report issues like this. Nigerians are being taken for granted because we don’t have people to enforce laws that are being made. How can a foreigner who can’t even try this in his country be allowed to go on unnoticed for this long. Nafdac should also visit Goodies, Cactus, Jade and the rest of them. This is totally unacceptable.

    Same way I went to Shoprite in Ikeja last year and saw an attendant removing expired dates from their sausages and sticking fresh dates. God bless Nigeria!

    After reading most of your racist comments, and excuse me the non racist one… But here’s a fact that all black African people and specially Nigerians should understand. It’s not the foreigners nor the oga at the top who damaged Nigeria but yourself and all of you…. You are not meant to have power or get more responasabilities, from the lasma who has minimal power and starts using it to get money instead of doing for as a civil duty to the ogas at the top who does the same thing. And excuse me for saying this but you who is reading you are the same as them unless you are Buhari or from the 1% of ethical nigerians and black african. Yet i doubt because even if you are ethical, then you should be a genius as they are the only few 1% eho don’t have tine to read this (yet i turned oit to be one of this 1%). So please stop blaming everybody but you and yet i don’t blame you as you are God’s creation with inferiority. You are born to be peasants and labourers and good at one thing only in your lifes. I hope you evolve

      WTF! We didn’t send for you, no Black person called you up out of Satan’s butthole where you were resting to come to Nigeria to kill them off with your decades old stale food and poisons. Why are you not balling in your own land, if it was so fabulous? Many of you are bloody criminals in your own country, or child molesters who run to Africa to do your diabolical deeds and escape justice. Where you going to run to next? because we all know how this game is played. I hope the same evil you mete out on Nigerians in your quest for wealth return to you and yours double fold. Escape hell, that is what you should do!! You think the username is going to fool anybody to what you are.

    I was at Pattaya’s a couple of years ago, they brought the food out only for me to see a baby cockroach running out from under the stainless steel thingy they used to cover the plate. I almost died! Rejected the food immediately. And ode like me asked for something else. Can you imagine? Me sef, I get issues for not walking out of the restaurant instantaneously! I think I was hungry.

    Jeez! And to think of the fact that I patronized that place almost every Sunday for 2 years before I moved out of Lagos 4 years ago. Even we dey meet Alisson Madueke and that her chubby son wells each Sunday for some deserved decadence. Chai! Every evil thing including lawsuits, damages payments, jail term and so on will punish the owners of Chocolate Royale o. In case any NAFDAC personnel is reading this, that confectionery belonging to some pathetic Chinese in Lokoja needs to be closed down patapata. I have pictorial evidences to show how my husband and I bought expired Youghurt there and having noticed it has expired for more than 4 months, the stupid manager begged us to accept 5k as apology. Chai! They saw my colour that day o no be small. I made them sign an undertaking of culpability in case We came down with any illness and reported them to Kogi SMoH. Of course the idiots civil servants did nothing. NAFDAC a beg go close that place o. Chinese, Lebanese, Indians and co wan kill us for being nice to their businesses. Why now?

    What is the criteria for setting up an eatery in Nigeria? Do we have standards in place? Are there processes in place for checking these eatries? Do they have inspectors that carry out checks? How about NAFDAC having a press conference where it can answer press questions? These are serious allegations! and their website is still up! Can someone tell NAFDAC that their online presence has to be blocked in addition to their physical office premise? Meanwhile i must commend them for their swift and prompt action. They need to block their website asap.

    …So 2 years ago, my family and I went to celebrate at ‘yingyang’ , the next day, the youngest developed food poisoning, fainted 3 times and got admitted to Luth for a week. It was such a frightening experience as We almost lost him. My mum kept on saying it was d devil trying to kill our joy. No mum, it was the nigerian at the customs taking bribe, the one at Nafdac not doing his job properly that wanted to take our joy away

  98. Hmmmm

    May 28, 2015 at 3:56 pm

    Hmmm.. I really wonder why it took a ‘tip off’ before the NAFDAC officials went on the ‘raid’! Shouldn’t there be like regular inspections of all these fast foods, eateries and the likes? Biko! NAFDAC please don’t be waiting for ‘tip offs’.. ensure you inspect these places regularly so as to ensure compliance with health standards! Thank you!

    The bane of all this is corruption. Corruption is not with Jona’s cabinet. It is with civil servants who refused to do their jobs. It is customs who allowed those goods in . NAFDAC who refused to to do routine inspection. Alot of Nigerians, have not done their jobs that is white this could happen.
    How is it possible that the Lebanese escaped, if not aided by Nigerians?
    We shout change, change. You are the change that is required.
